unfortunately the important RCS keyword $Header$ is also not listed on
the output of this command.

$URL$ is missing the date, author, version info and
$Id$ is missing the full path (not really useful)

The only way to get the job done is a manual combination of

$URL$ $Author$ $Date$ $Rev$

Why is it that complicated when it could be so easy to have a $Header$ to
stay compatible to RCS and probably CVS?

Also the manual says you have to turn on propsets for each file like in

   svn propset svn:keywords "Id" file

to turn on expansion for "Id". Furthermore you seem to have to checkout
and checkin again to make this work, even if the file had a $Id$ label in
its text earlier.

Regards,

Guido
